In Sudan, famine is likely to be declared this year, as violent military conflict continues to scatter the population, disrupting agriculture and access to food. A third of the population do not have enough to eat, and around 222,000 children could die of starvation in the coming months. 

The country is experiencing the biggest displacement crisis in history, with 8.4 million people having fled their homes due to violence. Exploitation and abuse of women and children has risen, and diseases are on the rise as families have little to no access to healthcare. 

The Disaster Action Fund exists to respond to critical needs such as what we’re witnessing in Sudan—providing essential support for vulnerable families. 

Your donation today means our local Christian Partners around the world can respond to urgent needs in times of crisis, including in Sudan with support such as emergency health kits and access to health services.

Some of the world’s most vulnerable communities live in the most disaster-prone areas. With limited capacity to mitigate sudden catastrophes, these families are more vulnerable to disasters. They also lack the resources to respond and rebuild effectively, creating a vicious cycle of poverty. 

Your gift to the Disaster Action Fund means our local Christian Partners can respond urgently and effectively when disasters strike, both now and in the future

And your gift will keep on giving.  Destruction caused by any disaster halts development in communities for years at a time.  Your donation will help fund projects so that communities can rebuild and prepare for future disasters. 

Estimates suggest that one dollar invested in helping families prepare for disaster saves up to six dollars in response and recovery after disaster hits*. 

Give to the Disaster Action Fund today and partner with us in saving lives before, during, and after disaster strikes.

*According to the National Institute of Building Sciences, every dollar invested in disaster mitigation can save six dollars in recovery costs.
